AntiMusic reports that a Whitesnake special will be shown on a US cable/satellite channel Reelz on February 19, 2022, at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT. It will be a part of the Story of Their Songs series.

Spawned from the mind of former Deep Purple frontman David Coverdale the British rock band Whitesnake first appeared on the English music scene in 1978 and would soon achieve global stardom.

Story of Their Songs celebrates six of their hits from the hard-hitting rock epics ‘Love Ain’t No Stranger’ and ‘Still of the Night’ to heartfelt groovy ballads ‘Is This Love?’ and ‘The Deeper the Love’ to the heavy blues of ‘Fool for Your Loving’. It’s a band with an everchanging lineup as they battled against the odds only to emerge with the chart-topping giant ‘Here I Go Again’.

Original members guitarist Bernie Marsden and bass player Neil Murray recall the group’s early days and the drive that they saw in lead singer Coverdale who engaged in a relentless pursuit of perfection.

Blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa offers his unique appraisal of what makes the Whitesnake sound so memorable while recording engineer Mike Fraser explains the sonic qualities of Whitesnake’s multi-platinum breakthrough U.S. album ‘1987’.

Emmy Award winning music video director Marty Callner shares his experience directing Whitesnake videos and how model and actress Tawny Kitaen became a vital influence on their huge success.

Whitesnake six string legends Adrian Vandenberg and Steve Vai give the low down on their part in helping the band become one of the biggest rock acts on the planet.

    Pity it’s just the US-WS again … and I guess Fool For Your Loving and Here I Go Again will focus on the remakes…

    I suppose Is This Love has to be a part of it… but even The Deeper The Love too? (Repeat the formula…) Just wish they would shed a little light on the likes of Walking In Ths Shadow or Ready An’ Willing or even Ain’t No Love too … but here we go again … 😉
